"Each time I work on a concept, I try to consider the shape of an object less as the result of the design process, more the beginning of the user's experience. For me, objects are bearers of information on not only past but also potential experiences. Objects define situations and take on meaning whilst engaging with the user both physically and emotionally. Perhaps the best compliment one could pay a designer is to show him that his creation has become a person's most treasured possession."
